Details of the London to Kathmandu tour, September-October 1979

by Nick Whetstone.

Having planned to back-pack my way to Australia, and then, hopefully, continue to complete a circumnavigation of the world, I decided to start my journey on an organized tour rather than simply using public transport and hotels. The main reason was to save money while passing through Europe, and I therefore chose one of the budget operators in the hope that they would at least get me as far as Turkey. As it turned out, I got a lot more than that for my money.

Here are details of that journey from London to Kathmandu, broken down into four parts.

London to Istanbul
Istanbul to Isfahan
